Hi everybody,
I used Wordfast trial version to translate a document. Then as it reached its memory limit, Wordfast asked me to buy the licence. Sometime later, I decided to buy TRADOS instead. Now I need to finish translating that document. I tried the TRADOS clean up option but it didn't clean up anything. Is it possible to get a final translated document using TRADOS clean up option? Do I have to buy Wordfast or do I have to translate the document all over again?
Thanks for your help

there are several possibilities Aug 6, 2007

one of them
you can extract text file from Wordfast memory, import it into Trados and retranslate the text in Trados. What has been done once (in WF) will be used again (in Trados).
